Three Verses Focusing on God’s Forgiveness

Here are 3 verses that remind me of how great God’s forgiveness really is:

  • As far as the east is from the west,
    So far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12, NASB)
  • Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
    They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV)
  • Jesus said,“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34, NIV)

Erich’s note: I love how these scriptures remind me of just how far God has taken our sins away from us, how God’s compassion is new every morning, and how forgiving others was on Jesus’ mind even as He hung on the cross.

Your turn… What are some other verses that remind you of how great God’s forgiveness is?
